Concerts Policy

The Social Planning and Events Committee (SPEC) is responsible for University concerts and other major events that involve artists’ fees, except those that are related to an academic program or to the program of the Annenberg Center. SPEC also is responsible for coordinating the scheduling of such events. Student organizations or other campus groups planning a major ticketed event such as a concert, comedy show, or other event that involves the payment of professional artists’ fees should contact the Office of Student Affairs for more information.

Major ticketed events such as concerts, comedy shows, or other events that involve the payment of professional artists’ fees cannot be used for fund-raising purposes. The University does not have the staff or the facilities to accommodate concerts or other major ticketed events for purposes other than academic or campus activities programming. Exceptions to this policy must be approved in writing, in advance, by the Office of Student Affairs.

All funds from ticket sales for concerts and other major ticked events sponsored by student organizations must be deposited in a University account and disbursed in accordance with established student activities guidelines.
